What is FoundationOne Heme?
FoundationOne Heme is a comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP) test combining DNA and RNA sequencing for patients with hematologic malignancies, sarcomas or solid tumors where RNA sequencing is desired. FoundationOne Heme detects known, novel, and complex fusion events as well as other common genomic alterations (substitutions, indels, and CNVs). This laboratory developed test (LDT) can be used by physicians to identify potential targeted therapy options, detect alterations in prognostic genes, and sub-classify sarcoma diagnoses.
>400 DNA-sequenced genes and >250 RNA-sequenced genes
Combines DNA and RNA sequencing to detect all four main classes of genomic alterations, including sensitive identification of translocations and fusions
Valuable insights to help guide treatment strategies
Expansive gene panel provides broad coverage across guideline-recommended genes in leukemias and MDS.¹⁻³
Multiple sample types accepted
FoundationOne Heme is validated for FFPE tissue, peripheral whole blood, bone marrow aspirate, and extracted nucleic acid

Can Rapid Precision Medicine Help Older Adults With AML?READ FULL BLOG POST
The findings from the Beat AML Master trial offer new insights that, we believe, can help change clinical practice because they validate a framework for rapid precision medicine that improves outcome. Because blood cancers are so complex, they require a sophisticated strategy to understand each patient’s unique cancer as well as the treatments that have the best chance at improving survival.

CTOS 2019: Navigating the sarcoma maze with CGPREAD FULL BLOG POST
With more than 80 subtypes, sarcomas can be susceptible to misdiagnosis, and there are very limited treatment guidelines beyond standard chemotherapy.4 This is where comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP) can help remove the guess work by identifying alterations in the genes driving the cancer that might be prognostic or inform targeted therapies.
